Invasive Species Impacts on Biodiversity in a Maine Watershed
How diverse is my local ecosystem? Students compare local biodiversity counts to those in other areas of their watershed.
Watershed Experiences get students outside to observe, ask questions, investigate, take action, and deepen their scientific understanding and connection to their local watersheds. They begin with a current environmental issue and research question of direct meaning and importance to students and local communities. A series of essential questions helps teachers guide students through standards-aligned introductory activities, classroom-based research, inquiry-based field investigations, and a student-led action.
